Modern Roses and Fragrance :All In the Nose of the Beholder

Reblogged from Conard Pyle:


Part one (a little bit of history and science).
By Jacques Ferare

Modern roses are often characterized by their abundance of colors, flower shapes and plant habits. This diversity is easy to observe. However, most people probably do not realize that this diversity also applies to their fragrance, which arguably may be their most important attribute. Not only are most modern roses fragrant, contrary perhaps to conventional wisdom, but generation after generation of controlled crossing and hybridization have brought about scents that existed infrequently, if any at all, in previous garden roses.

Hi Elena – What a beautiful rose! Drat! I need this one in my garden, too. Thanks for sharing the rose photo. It makes my day to see a beautiful rose. :) I’m not finished with winterizing and I have 10 roses still to plant, so I can’t read those wonderful rose books yet. Wanna help?
